Jump to: navigation, search
This article pertains to an item, mission or other feature which is exclusive to the Japanese PC version of Phantasy Star Universe.

Free course (フリーコース) is a service which allows you to play Ambition of the Illuminus online for free simply by registering a PSU ID. If you had previously paid for a GUARDIANS License and either canceled it or allowed it to lapse, you will be logged in as a free course player. There are certain restrictions to free course, however, which can be lifted by registering for premium course.
